Hi everyone
Here's my latest effort at portrait photography.
This is Skylar a good friend of mine who offered to pose for me.

I did this at work with some cheap studio lights and a makeshift background.
It took a llong time to get the light right but i think i got there in the end!
Any critique to help me improve would be very welcome Smile

Thanks for looking and commenting on my recent posts Smile

Ricky.

Cant really offer critique Ricky but she is pretty its lit well and you caught good movement ,just as well you used a solid bg it would be a devil of a job to change with that hair ,highlights are not blown ,looks good to my untrained eye.

A super portrait Ricky - natural and lovely! I'd also love to see a mono conversion which I think would focus even more attention on her beautiful face.
